Easily understandable and accessible information is important to raise flood risk awareness and support the implementation of private risk reduction measures. It can be made available as reading materials, for example in print products (handbooks, guidelines, brochures, flyers) or on online platforms. The products should be tailored to a specific target group, e.g. citizens, homeowners, companies, forestry, agriculture, etc. A large number of high quality information materials have already been developed by various actors. The use of existing products should therefore be checked. Easy access to the information needs to be guaranteed, i.e. on a central platform or place. Additionally, public relation and media work support the distribution of information.
